Sowing the Seeds of Success

Houses

This year at Wellstead, we will be continuing with our house system that was introduced in 2016 to celebrate children following the Wellstead Way.

 

Every child across the school has been placed into one of five houses. Each house will have a number of children from every year group. 

 

The houses have been named after prominent people from the local area and each has been allocated a team colour.

 

The children will meet regularly as a house and these will be led by the recently appointed Year 6 House Captains.

 

This year's (2023/24) House Captains were chosen on October 13th.  Lots of Y6 children put themselves forward, prepared a speech and presented to their House.  The other children in the house then voted for their House Captains.  The voting was very close...the elected captains are recorded in the table below.

Children will earn a house point by displaying good learning behaviour. The house points will be totalled each week and the scores will be announced in Celebration Assembly.

 

The house with the most house points will, of course, be rewarded.  How this happens changes each year - listen out for important announcements.

 

We are planning many different events over the year, including Sports Day, when the houses can meet together and undertake team challenges and activities so watch this space!

It's very close at the moment!  Remember that reading lots will add house points to your house total.
